Taloyoak's CWC Mary Ugyuk Sutherland wins Nunavut's award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care

Each province and territory in Canada has recognized one program or individual within its borders with an Award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care. People First Radio presents a series of conversations with a number of the recipients from across Canada.

In Nunavut, the award went to Mary Ugyuk Sutherland.

She’s the community wellness coordinator in Taloyoak, the northernmost community on Canada’s mainland, which is home to just under 1000 people.

Sutherland spoke with People First Radio about what being a community wellness coordinator looks like, and how humbled she was at receiving an award from the premier’s office.
